This series introduces the students to the gothic as broad traditions/genres for those taking A Level English Literature. Specific texts will be mentioned and examined, but not in the detail of text-/author-centred series; the primary aim is to consider how various example texts might fit (or perhaps not fit) received wisdom concerning what gothic “is.”.

Audiopi has been very useful and I am singing your praises. Our students achieved 93% grades 4-9 at literature - and the podcasts really helped our pupils to go into the exams feeling confident about the texts.Also, the podcasts are very engaging and particularly useful for helping pupils who struggle with reading chunks of text, such as those with dyslexia
I like the way I can listen to a debate on the way home from school; I don’t have to be in a classroom or at a desk!
“We are loving the podcasts! I have got all my history students into them and they can't quite believe their luck.”
“Since purchasing Audiopi, we have seen a large growth in both motivation and progress within our students. A truly valuable resource for any student to use, regardless of ability”
"I came top of the class all thanks to Audiopi"
"As an English Teacher I can confidently say that every English Teacher would love to have Audiopi”
Audiopi has brought a different dimension to pupil revision. We were particularly impressed by the combination of core examination content and involvement of high profile historians; highly recommended!”
“Amazingly helpful. I’m a Year 10 student who has had this bought for me, it is very helpful and has shown me more POV’s on the poems. 10/10 would recommend.
The Gothic series is tailored to AOs 3, 4, & 5 of the incoming AS/A Level English Literature courses primarily, but AOs 1 & 2 will also be accessed. The proposed series are short, the intention being that students/teachers might make use of them early in the courses of study, before in-depth textual study begins.
